Tips On Keeping Your Pet Warm For The Winter

Fall has arrived and winter is just around the corner. We have had a few cold days here in Austin so far and the days are only getting colder. It is time to start rummaging through the back of the closet to sort out the winter clothing for the year. We all know how to take care of ourselves for the winter months, but what about your pet? Its up to you to prepare for the safety of your pet in the winter months. Here are a few tips on how to keep your Austin pet warm for the winter.

The most logical solution to keeping your pet warm for the winter is to keep it indoors. Small problems may arise from this situation, but there are solutions to these common problems as well, for example, if your pet can sometimes make a mess, keep it in the laundry room and buy a cage if necessary. Pet owners must weigh the pros and cons of keeping their pets indoors, however, setting these pros and cons aside, indoors is the safest place for them during the winter months.

The garage is the next best place to keep your pet sheltered from the weather. If you choose to keep your pet in the garage, lay some blankets down so your pet will stay warm. You may also want to invest in a space heater or a heater that is garage safe.

If your pet is strictly an outdoor pet, buy a shelter for it. There are great pet shelters available that will protect your pet from the winter chill. If you’re strapped for cash, you can stretch a tarp over some chairs or a table to provide some shelter for your pet.

Remember, there is no greater feeling than to see your pet greet you at the door when coming home from a hard day’s work. They are always eager to play and can brighten your day no matter how hard it was. Keep your pet happy by keeping them warm for the winter.
